Google Earth Flight Simulator

Hello all

If you've installed the latest version of Google Earth (4.2) then there is a hidden flight simulator available.

If you press: Ctrl + Shift + A (for Windows) or Command + Option + A (for OSX) then a dialogue box will pop up asking which plane you wish to fly (F-16 or SR22) and from which airport.

Full controls are available here:

Cheers
Moosh

Yes, they really ought to photograph the entire world more often for their free software :D

It's more likely to do with expense. Satellite and low level aircraft photography is expensive.
